    Straight Talking: Delivering Tough Messages

    One primary goal of business conversations, especially for managers and project leaders, is to communicate negative or challenging news in a direct and complete manner. A second goal is to encourage open and honest communication from employees and team members so that everyone understands what is actually happening and what people are actually thinking. By bringing their own and others’ unspoken thoughts into the open, managers and project leaders are able to address business problems and opportunities efficiently and effectively. Unfortunately, “…silence is not only ubiquitous and expected in organizations but extremely costly to both the firm and the individual.” (Is Silence Killing Your Company? by L. Perlow & S. Williams, HBR, May 2003)

    In this course, participants practice and get feedback about the core skills of Straight Talking: listening, inquiring, speaking, and silence. Participants learn the Straight Talking process and practice conversations involving tough messages. Finally, participants learn how to create the necessary conditions for open, honest communication with everyone in their organization.

    Strengthen Your Personal Presence

    This webinar focuses on actions that people can take to prepare themselves to thrive in a business
    environment where uncertainty and change are the only constants. Change is inevitable, but that does
    not mean that people must get stuck in the personal transitions associated with external changes. While
    responses to change vary across individuals, emotional reactions, even to positive changes, are a natural
    human response. These reactions only become problematic if people get “stuck,” unable to move
    forward or become fully productive in the new situation.
